The aim of the study was to find out the relationship between project management practices and the implementation of HIV projects. The specific objectives of the study included to find out the effect of project design on the implementation of HIV projects, to find out the contribution of project staffing on the implementation of HIV projects and to examine the contribution of monitoring and evaluation on the implementation of HIV projects. The case study design was used where an accessible population of 210 respondents was identified from which females were 109 (51.9%)and males were 101 (48.1%). Key findings obtained include the positive relationship between project design, project staffing, project monitoring and evaluation on the implementation of projects. Based on discussion, TASO were heavily reliant on donors in terms of financing the projects they implemented. The most frequently implemented projects were Behavioral Change Communication projects, Care and Support for the Sick. Most donors have stringent, time consuming and laborious reporting requirements. There is need for donors to identify simpler and friendlier reporting formats for the recipients of their funds without compromising their interests but at the same time not overburdening TASO. Areas of further Research could be to determine the challenges TASO faces during the implementation of HIV projects, The impact of HIV Projects on performance of TASO.
